Mathworks Curriculum Samples

Mathworks Math Explorations

Mathworks' innovative school-year curriculum for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades integrates learning from the laboratory of our summer math camps with objectives that cover the TEKS through Algebra I.  The curriculum includes completion of Algebra I by the end of 8th grade.

Young students are engaged in using algebraic ideas, and these ideas are built upon throughout their middle school years.  Math Explorations weaves algebra and algebraic ideas with hands-on, inquiry-based explorations for students working independently and in groups.  The curriculum is presented in carefully developed textbooks and supporting materials that has been implemented with over 3,500 middle school students across Texas.

Textbook ordering: If you are interested in purchasing copies of any of the three textbooks, please submit a request online and we will contact you as soon as possible.
